Uml Process / Re: How can i diagram stored procedure?
« on: September 16, 2008, 09:14:26 am »
Use a Data Model diagram. Read about these and Stored procedures in the EA Help, Data Modeling section.  You can find the topics on stored procedures very quickly using the index.

What release are you using? Whereabouts in the Help is this reference to the Tool | Options | Generate menu option? You are right, it doesn't exist, and there shouldn't be a reference to it. I can't find it, but it might be in an older version of the Help.

Uml Process / Re: Analysis diagram - objects/classes
« on: June 27, 2008, 10:25:30 am »
OK, the Help was wrong.

As Paul found, the Analysis diagram Toolbox page creates Boundaries, Controls and Entities as stereotyped Objects. EA used to offer the choice of creating the elements as stereotyped Objects or stereotyped Classes, but now defaults to Objects.

As I mentioned earlier, you can easily create them as stereotyped Classes by creating a Class element and applying the appropriate stereotype. And as Neil mentioned, you can get the Toolbox elements to insert stereotyped Classes by defining them in a Profile.

Sorry about the confusion. I have corrected the Help - changes visible in the next release.

I can't comment on the Toolbox Boundary, Entity and Control elements at the moment, but to create these as stereotyped Classes, drag the Class element from the toolbox onto the diagram and, in the properties, set the stereotype to boundary, entity or control. You might have already done this for the Entity?

Uml Process / Re: setting SysML Perspective (for toolbox default
« on: April 09, 2008, 03:53:00 pm »
Hello Owen

Enterprise Architect from release 7.0 no longer uses perspectives. We have yet to update the MDG Technology For SysML Help.

To acheive the result you want, enable the Add-In for SysML and make it the active technology (select it in the field in the Default Tools toolbar). This adds the SysML Toolbox pages to the Toolbox as the dominant pages.

If you have normal EA or another MDG as the active technology, You can also select the SysML Toolbox pages from the More Tools menu (at the top of the Toolbox) and pin them to the Toolbox, if you want other pages to be available too.

Try looking at:

Look at the note at the end of this topic.  Also look at the parent topic (The Enterprise Architect UML Toolbox) and follow the links to MDG Technologies and UML Profiles, for broader information.

I hope this helps you.

Uml Process / Re: Circle notation for interfaces
« on: February 13, 2008, 09:18:08 pm »
No, I'm sorry Paolo, but Figure 7.55 distinctly shows the interface ISensor (ball) attached to the Classifier ProximitySensor (rectangle). On page 88 (in my copy of the spec, probably 90 in yours; I have the 2007/02/05 edition) there are illustrations of the alternative notation of the interface ISensor, i.e rectangular notation (figure 7.57) with your expected dotted-line realization.

What it DOESN'T say is that the actual Realization edge is also drawn as a solid rather than dotted line.  This makes it look like an Association.

On that statement, I would have expected the edge to remain dotted.


And another quote from page 87 of the UML Superstructure Specification (2.1.1):

"The interface realization dependency from a classifier to an interface is shown by representing the interface by a circle or ball, labeled with the name of the interface, attached by a solid line to the classifier that realizes this interface."

We will change the Help sentence to finish with "are drawn as a solid line without target arrows."

Uml Process / Re: Non-unique indexes
« on: November 11, 2007, 03:35:20 pm »
I notice in the help that they refer to the Columns tab ... does that actually mean the Parameters button?

Also, I don't see any Unique checkbox when using the <<index>> stereotype so does this mean I put something in the post condition?

Are you using this procedure?

There is a specific Columns tab on the Operations dialog, and there is no Unique checkbox.

If you are creating a table (as in

and then you define table columns (as in )

Then you display a Table Columns dialog, which contains the Unique checkbox.

Note that there is no Column element in the Toolbox in EA Release 818 - you access columns only as attributes of the table. Also, the procedure refers to the Table: Attributes dialog, but it is now the Table: Columns dialog.

I can't find the Parameters button in this context - which dialog are you using?

Presumably you read this:

Uml Process / Re: Metamodel packages
« on: October 31, 2007, 04:38:42 pm »
I'm not sure if the (small) change to the procedure has washed through to the Help you are using, but you just type the value metamodel in the Stereotype field - it's one of those stereotypes you create by using it once.



Uml Process / Re: Active lifeline stops after first return in al
« on: October 10, 2007, 02:47:04 pm »
This is the topic you want:

Admittedly, it wasn't easy to locate via index entries, so I have beefed them up. Changes will wash through in the product Help for build 818.

As regards the bug report, I haven't seen it, but it might be worth resubmitting it with stress on the fact that it the interpretation of the alt fragment that is a problem, rather than just extending the activation.



Uml Process / Re: Actor stereotypes not showing on Use Case

You might get a "chime in" from one of my colleagues, but a number of people are out of the office for a few days so please excuse the apparent silence on points that might fall in their particular area of expertise.


Uml Process / Re: Help with Oracle View modeling
« on: September 19, 2007, 03:22:20 pm »

You seem to have hit a known bug with the display of the database field. This bug was fixed in release 816, with a new dialog and Database field when you first create the Database view, and the Database field displaying on the element Properties dialog for subsequent edits and instances of the View.

To set the Default Database, use the Code Generation Toolbar (View | Toolbars | Code Generation). The second dop-down field enables you to set the default database.

If you have further problems, please send in a bug report. It would be great if you could also identify where the Help is not helping, so that we can fix that too. Thanks!



Uml Process / Re: How to set the responsibilities in a class in
« on: August 08, 2007, 03:00:34 pm »

The short answer is: no, you can't convert an external (system) requirement into an internal (responsibility) requirement.

I don't want to put a whole list of Help links here, but the following two should put you in the right areas of EA Help.

The above link might be all you need - start at the Introduction topic and look at the links within it.  However, if you want a bit more information on the Requirements tab of the Element Properties dialog, go to:

When you look at this topic, also check the one above it in the Help contents.

I'll confess that there should be links between these two areas of Help, but I have put them in now. I'm not sure when the updated Help will be generally available - soon, I hope.



What release of Enterprise Architect are you using?
